Air quality looks to get worse before it gets better. A northwest flow will move across the state. However, improvements in air quality are expected by mid-week as monsoon moisture moves in, giving the state a chance of rain and thunderstorms. As it pertains to the Parleys Canyon Fire, winds do become a concern during the afternoon hours on Sunday. Winds should subside by Sunday evening.
